Map of Pinawa - Sundial Site

We would like to show you where the Pinawa Heritage Sundial will be built. The location of the sundial site is at the centre of the community and is very near the town marina which is located on the Winnipeg River. Although at this time the site is but a large grassed area, it is a very beautiful location. Look carefully and you can see the location of the dial plate in the photograph above.

We will be turning the site into a small park that will include a variety of other sundials to be built in future years. The park will be an inviting place where visitors and residents can come not only to see the sundials but to stay and enjoy their surroundings. It will be a meeting place and a place for contemplation.

Pinawa has been involved in the Communities in Bloom program for some time now. Our group is called Pinawa in Bloom. Members of this group have undertaken the design and development of the park landscape. We hope to do some interesting projects at the site.

Two of the light standards have been removed from the sundial site. One just simply detracted from the gnomon once it was erected and just had to go. The second was removed and the pedastal was used to install an electrical service panel which now provides power to the site.

As well as the two remaining light standards, there are an additional seven in the area that we have access to. These are no longer powered and the luminaires can be removed, leaving nine poles that our group can use.

As the site develops we will bring you more photographs and information on the progress of the project.
